Senate Judiciary to prod legal issues around Insure Tennessee

Via TN Report,

The committee is chaired by Sen. Brian Kelsey, a Germantown Republican who last year sponsored the “Stop Obamacare Act.” That legislation requires the governor to win the General Assembly’s approval for any deals he negotiates with the federal government to sign Tennessee up for Medicaid expansion under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Kelsey is among the General Assembly’s most outspoken opponents of Obamacare. He’s declared his intention to try to kill the governor’s “Insure Tennessee” initiative “as soon as possible.”
